love a powerful thing

(love is a powerful thing)

She said I’m waiting on a train

A train is gonna come

But no train has run in these parts

Since nineteen fifty one

She’s all dressed up in a pleated skirt

Bobbi socks and penny shoes

She said he’s my boy I’m his girl

Mama says she’s eighty two

I said come on grandma

Lets go home

She said just you wait and see tommy

My man is gonna come

Hook

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you stand outside for hours

Waiting in the rain

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you spend your life in sorrow

Waiting on a train

2nd verse

Little boy can’t stop crying

Daddy say he can’t go

Mama who’s gonna take care of ryan

Who’s gonna feed him anymore

His mama said the neighbors

Will take real good care of him

Little boy say I can’t go then

Mama he won’t stay with them

From L.A. to Toronto

Little boy looks back all the way

And somewhere far behind him

A little dog runs everyday

Hook

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you stay outside for hours

running in the rain

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you spend your life in sorrow

chasing a plane

3rd verse

Twenty men try to stop him

Twenty men stand aside

Cursing bitterly

As they watch him run inside

Nobody but him

Since an hour ago

In that burning building

Is screaming anymore

He said my little girl is in there

I gotta get her out

Twenty men stood there crying

Cuz they knew what he was about

Hook

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you stand outside for hours

Crying with no shame

Love is a power

A powerful thing

Make you give your life to sorrow

For nothing to gain
